Also please don’t feed me with the prestige crap cuz an Oxbridge law degree gives you the same effect at a fraction of what you would spend in total for any American J.D.
If you're working in Singapore, sure. Fully agreed.

But if you're comparing their respective markets, the amounts you get from being a law firm parter in New York or Chicago shits all over the London MC firms. I would do it if I was a girl -> the 7 years coupled with NS is way too long, but I would totally do it if I could get it done by 26.
